I think k they were $370 a set. To me, upsizing the tire made a huge difference in behavior, in a positive way.
    Yea I would highly recommend the wider wheels if you're able to. The stance on the car is totally different, but yea the 215 tires make a huge difference. Let me know how you like the RS-RRs. I wanted those, but read that some people experienced incredibly loud tire noise and it kind of scared me off of them. But then other people said it wasn't terrible. They also have the new RS-R Pros coming out any day now, but I'll just get those next time.

    As for transmission mount I didn't use the insert, I have a custom one-off hybrid which I love. I'd recommend a mount swap too though.

    I have Powerflex inserts for the front 2 mounts. Perfect balance between great feel and low added NVH. Search for "insert" and you'll find a ton of info on it. Here's my video review of them:



    You can find other reviews of Fiesta mods on my channel as well.
    Great, thanks for the info. I just ordered the LEDs. As for the mount inserts I'll have to think about it. I'm sure it makes a difference, but it's another $150 and doesn't seem like a really quick job to do both.

    I'm not sure what I want to do for wheels. Really want a set of TD1.2's

    These Federals are probably the last set I'll buy for the stock wheels. I have mud tires on my tahoe, so as far as road noise, I'm in the "bring it on" camp.
